    It's Impossible to Stop.

    As a child I never cried. Then I cried a lot. Everywhere and about everything. Several times in front of teachers. Just because my teachers would make a comment like "You have to work on this or that.". It would make me cry. Now I'm hardly ever crying again...

    A Family Poison!

    There was a saying, that my grandmother told my mother and she passed it to me... it was "Never let them see you sweat." That was an awful poison to pass on. Because it meant to hold in your feelings, keep smiling, and in the end it made things worse! I developed...

    A Thought?

     Sometimes... it seems like the people that try not to cry are the ones in need of a really good cry. You can't hold everything in forever. You have a breaking point. Just let it out when you can...  But what do I know? I cry all the time. :/

    I actually hate crying. It makes me feel weak and pathetic and needy. Whenever I cry it doesn't help get emotions out or whatever, it just makes me feel like a stupid child.
